Greg had always been fascinated by the ancient civilizations that seem to have disappeared without a trace. So when he stumbled upon a portal while hiking one day, he was beyond excited. He knew this was the discovery of a lifetime.

As soon as he pushed through the portal, he felt an intense energy course through him. He couldn’t believe he had finally found the entrance to the ancient city. He walked through the portal and emerged into a world of incredible architecture and beauty.

He was amazed by the way the city had been preserved for centuries. He explored every nook and cranny, and was thrilled to find hidden treasures waiting for him. The experience was so overwhelming that he didn’t want to leave.

But eventually he had to return to reality. He knew he had to tell somebody about this amazing discovery, and he had a feeling they would believe him. He was right. His friends were astonished when he told them about his discovery, and they were eager to visit the city for themselves.

Now every time Greg visits the portal, he feels a sense of peace and happiness. He knows that this is the place where he belongs, and he is grateful to have found it.
